The Kansas Chiefs Will Host Their First Ever Title Game

January 13, 2019

The Kansas City Chiefs will host an AFC or for that matter an AFL Title Game for the first time in their 59 year history, after their first ever home NFL division round victory yesterday.

Saying it will be the Chiefs first ever home title game in the 47 year history of Arrowhead Stadium,is understating the history involved in what was an easy Chiefs (31-13) victory vs the Indy Colts, a team that was (4-0) vs them in the NFL playoffs.

As either the Dallas Texans (1960-1962, with a title in ’62) or as the Chiefs from (1963-2017) the franchise never hosted such a game. They won the AFL “all the way” crown in 1962, winning at Houston (Oilers) on Tommy Brooker’s field goal in the second overtime. In both ’66 and ’69, they won ROAD AFL title games/semis, en route to a Supe win in ’69 and a loss in ’66.

The win yesterday vs the Colts was just their second in the AFC division round (2-7), the other at Houston (Oilers) in 1993 was followed by a loss to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC title tilt. Buffalo went on to lose a fourth Super Bowl in as many seasons and they still have that (0-4) record in Super Bowl play as do the Minnesota Vikings.

Kansas City’s lone Super Bowl triumph was a win vs the Vikings, in the fourth Supe, the first of the 4 Vikings’ Super Bowl losses.

The Chiefs will host the winner of today’s Chargers at Patriots game in the later title tilt a week from today/tonight.

CBS plans a day of the Supe interview, already recorded with Len Dawson, the quarterback on that Chiefs’ 1969 season title team. You do the “math.”

 

“Face it” as Mr. Dawson pictured above, getting the snap from center E.J. Holub, who also played on defense earlier in his career, did regarding the 10 other Chiefs’ players in their huddle, (he faced them as they lined up in two rows of five) the Chiefs and their playoffs failure ridden coach Andy Reid loom!

Would you believe I have not cited the team’s excellent young quarterback, Patrick Mahomes until now.
